Oh Veronica, How we Miss You. But, we think you can do better. November 26, 2007

In Veronica Mars news, our little lady Kristin Bell has been spotted with man-about-town and Ashton Kutcher BeFri (maybe?) Dax Shepard.

Who would be a better guy for Ms. Bell? Your Mom’s vote is Peter Petrelli. If we can’t have him… yada yada.

. . . Though that is hard to do now that I have seen the mini-pilot for the never-to-be 4th season of Veronica Mars, the one which skips ahead 4+ years to see Veronica as a new FBI agent.  It is, in a word, a little slice of heaven.  Better than any of the new shows this year.  Unfortunately, there are only 2 parts and they are strangely edited.  But Veronica’s bon mots shine through.  The “old” boyfriend Seth seems like a pale, cheap imitation of Logan, but the smarter-than-Veronica (is it possible?) partner looks like a guy who could finally be worthy of our girl. 

 

I can’t believe Your Mom* missed this August 10, 2007

Via Michael Ausiello from TV Guide, Wednesday August 8.  Thanks to IAYM reader iamanonymous for bringing this tidbit to our attention. 

Kristen Bell by Just Loomis/The CW

Question: Have you spoken to Darlton about having Kristen Bell on Lost? If you pull this off, I swear (and you have this in writing, with AA witnesses) that I will send you one case of Diet Raspberry Snapple for every episode of Lost that Kristen appears on. Hope you’re up for the challenge!— Erin

Ausiello: You better get busy clipping them there Snapple coupons, Erin. And while you’re at it, slap on a pair of Depends, ’cause this is the kind of exclusive casting prattle that causes mass piddling: I can tell you for a fact that Kristen’s name has been brought up with regard to the new role of Charlotte, the hot twentysomething who is said to be “precocious, loquacious and funny… a very successful academic who also knows how to handle herself in the real world.” Yep, sounds like our Kristen! The only question now is whether my in-demand BFF is ready to jump back into another series. And, if so, will the financial toll wrought by all those Snapple purchases force Erin to declare bankruptcy? Please, God, let the answer be “Yes!” to all of the above!

*In this instance “Your Mom” refers Liz (who is the resident TV blogosphere expert) and to the website as a whole (but really that would just be the three posters — we know who we are) (but really really that would just refer to Liz and me since we are the only ones who would care).

The girls at Go Fug Yourself give Your Mom’s friend Kristin Bell some love today. We wanted to share…

A Veronica Comic?? June 12, 2007

Sorry for the late post today folks, but the day kinda got away from me…

Veronica Mars

Good news however… according to an interview with BlogCritics magazine, Rob Thomas – the creator of “Veronica Mars” – has been in talks with DC Comics to bring the character to a series of comic books, a la Buffy (which Your Mom got for her birthday and loved!).

Arcade_lSo, I know about this, not because I am cool, but because I get all my interesting tidbits from ew.com, but I guess there has been a blogging war going regarding one guy’s claim that the Arcade Fire stole his basketball. Anywhos, it ended with a knock-down, drag-out comment bonanza at stereogum.com as to who could come up with the best post-ironic “Band done me wrong” headline. Some of the best:

.

Sufjan Stevens Broke My Hockey Stick

Interpol cracked my Creme Brulee.

The Dandy Warhols cancelled Veronica Mars.

Jeff Tweedy Sold Me a Used Jetta.

The Eyeliners made me Emo.

The Decemberists trained a falcon to crap on my head at my wedding.

Phil Spector shot me in the mouth and killed me.

Voxtrot bummed a ride from me to the airport, and didn’t say thanks.

Camera Obscura were overly earnest in my general direction.

Art Brut used a metal spatula on my non-stick pan and scratched the shit out of it.

Broken Social Scene fire-bombed my country and left it’s economy in shambles.

 

The Ten.

Check out the hilarious trailer for the new movie “The Ten.”  It’s schedule to come out in limited release in August — but in the meantime it’s making the festival circuit.  It stars a whole bunch of people, including – to Your Mom’s delight – Vinnie Van Lowe.
